COBB COUNTY, Ga. — Police told Channel 2 Action News a man went into a fit of road rage in Cobb County on the way to the hospital to meet his wife as she went into labor -- and now he's facing criminal charges.
Officials said the incident began around 7:30 p.m. April 20 when Kristopher Mosley, 26, became frustrated with other drivers along East-West Connector near Floyd Road.
In a 911 call Channel 2's Matt Johnson obtained, two women said the man pointed a gun at them that had a laser sight attached.
Victim: I mean, I'm shaking.
911 operator: No, I understand.
Victim: Because there was a laser on it.
911 operator: Listen, I'm going to get an officer to meet with you, OK?
"He was, like, tailgating me horribly on East-West trying to push me out of the way and then when he switched lanes he jumped right in front of me and hit his brakes and then drove off," said one of the victims who did not want to be identified.
Police said moments later, Mosley pulled out his Glock handgun and pointed it at their car.
Cobb County police said Mosley admitted he flashed his gun but said it was unloaded and he was eager to get to his pregnant wife.
An arrest warrant shows police charged him with two counts of pointing a gun.
Drivers Johnson spoke to said they wished the man would have stayed calmer under pressure.
“I understand your wife is trying to have a baby or something like that but pulling a gun on somebody trying to get there, that's ignorant,” Marvin Gandy said.
Police allowed the driver to turn himself in Friday.
He is out on bond and refused to comment on the charges against him.
